to make sure our kid are educated so that they're able to contribute to a strong economy. we have to make sure that we're doing the capital, both public and private investment we need to have a strong economy. so i think a future orientation, not always looking backwards, not just looking at the win-loss record this year, is the secret of their success and i think it is an important thing for economic policymakers to think about as well. >> so lot of questions about the dollar. i guess the best way to sum up these questions would be what are your concerns about the value of the dollar and maybe related, have the various quantitative easing efforts at some point drive down the value of the dollar? is there sort of a natural limit to how much we can do before there is an impact on the dollar? >> so when people talk about the dollar, they often confuse two very different idea. i think it is important to distinguish them a little bit. the first idea is the buying power of the dollar. how much account dollar buy in terms of goods and services when you go to the grocery store, when you go to th
education front about the need to provide useful and adequate information to students. >> reporter: the idea is to help students ballpark their expected college cost, and the amount of debt they could take on to earn a degree. but the information isn't always complete, and could add more confusion to a process that's already too complicated. >> students and parents probably have too much information. there's so much formation out there it's hard for them to focus on what's really important in helping them make the right decisions. so a lot of the conversation is about new disclosures, part of the conversation has to be about streamlining the current disclosures. >> reporter: draeger showed us this book of all the things colleges and universities have to disclose to potential students. while a lot of this information explains what college will cost. consultant mark schneider says that's only half of what families should know. >> the information about wages, which is for me is the ultimate validation of the value of the degree, which is the ultimate consumer information that students need befo
to say. education costs different from medical facilities but the key thing is right now the traditional construction project only 20% of what gets put into the final building price point why is material. 40% is a risk and overhead. we want to reverse that equation. we are more like boeing. quality manufacturing and the attitude is if bowling can assemble a 737 in a matter of days why does it take 24 months to get health care clinic? ashley: how these structures come? i they and flat pack can you put it together? >> precisely. they're so important to us because that construction mean that is affordable to ship and we are not shipping boxes of air and we put panels up. imagine a high end building. it goes up quickly but we don't have to sacrifice on column free space for ceilings or daylight or air quality. it is that component approach that allows us to put something out that looks high end like it is the architecture. ashley: anyone else coming into the fold? >> largest health-care providers out there buying the buildings and the race for distributed health care and affordable health ca
with a diverse group of needs. what is it you offer? an easy regulatory environment? educated workforce? low tax rate? what is your main draw? >> to be successful you have to do it all and we are focusing on all those things. we built on technology. texas instruments was one of the founding fathers and when you build a city on technology that happens. when we have the f.w. airport when you get any place in the nation very quickly the third busiest airport in the world, it helps a lot and city hall we make sure we get things in and out and make decisions and don't get caught up in a lot of bureaucracy. try to minimize that as much as we can. melissa: some things to highlight. you have a budget surplus of $2.3 million and that has to do with property tax base because home values did not go down -- go up or down as much. they have been stable. over the next five years you see 12.8% job growth ranking number 4 nationally. the biggest category you are going to add 127,000 professional and business service jobs. who should come to dallas looking to find a job? >> at at&t, move from san antonio and att
